The hobo nickel refers to a coin that has had its original artwork altered into a new design by the homeless, often referred to as hobos, and then sold to make money. The U.S. nickel is a favorite coin to use due to the softness, size and thickness of the coin.

When the Buffalo nickel, or Indian Head, was introduced in 1913, it became popular among coin engravers. The large Native American head gave the artists a large template to work from that allowed finer detail work to be done. With this large template to work from, the hobo nickel became highly popular. Due to the softness of the metal in the nickel, hobo nickel tools could be made from any crude tool that could make a scratch, displace or punch into the coin.

The artwork of each hobo nickel is unique. Some hobo nickel artists would repeat specific designs due to their popularity, but most tried to create something new with each coin. Whether you are a veteran hobo nickel collector, or you are looking to start a hobo nickel collection, these Silver hobo nickel replicas at APMEX are perfect for you.

Beautiful 5 OZ Round

By  Jumpa

from Cape Cod


It took some time to do, but I was able to collect all 5 of the Mr.The 5 oz Silver Antique Hobo Nickel from Mr.The. If & when you order them take your time & read the description as they have an antique finish as well as a proof finish sets. I almost accidently bought a nonantique finish one. These same coins are on auction sites starting off at over $200 each, so gets them here while they are available .They only made a 1,000of each coin very low mintage I have a feeling in ten years these will be worth their weight in gold and a complete set of them ....who knows !


  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand
